Council spending on green agencies

Link to online version


"These organisations are vital to our environmental strategy. They have skilled and dedicated staff that project manage and help community groups, companies and councils to find environmental best practice solutions. Using their networks, they also work to change the behaviour of individuals. I did some work for the London Sustainability Exchange, which is funded by Forum for the Future to help promote sustainable lifestyles amongst ethnic minority groups.

"These amounts seem very meagre, almost embarrassing.

"These amounts befit a council that does not want to invest in best practice or behaviour change. Moreover, these amounts are in keeping with the claims that this Conservative council is full of climate change deniers. These contributions are just token gestures with regard to the environment. Croydon Council should be up near the top of the league table for London council contributions to environmental agencies."
